Thursday night had a little catering for an office party.  Wanted to share what a smoked appetizer buffet for 100 looks like here locally.



From front to back.  My cured smoked salmon as a Caesar salad martini, Shrimp shooters with smoked cocktail sauce, Hula Hula smoked chicken slider, Philly cheesesteak slider with smoked prime rib, charcuterie platter, cheese crackers, grilled vegetables, and fruit plates beyond that.  Now for some close ups.  I also cooked live with a presentation of vanilla bean ice cream with Bananas Foster.  People love the flames when you touch off the pan, so it makes an interesting presentation.  Though I have to remember I am in an office with a low false ceiling just above me.





















People had a great time, we were supposed to go to 7:30 PM and ended up staying and cooking til 8:30 PM.

Missing photos of the Pulled Pork sliders and the Smoked Crab Cake sliders.  Sauces, marinara for the phillies, Chipotle ancho for the chicken, crabs sirache for the crab cakes, jalapeno plum barbeque on the pork.

You are now my new Hero. I would really love to be able to do something that big one day. I almost wish that I could come out one day and help on a project like that. That's what I want to do one day. I have done a smoked lunch for 95 once and a breakfast for 70 and both were real learning experiences for me.

If you are serious about wanting to learn.  Smokin' in the Rockies is the event for you  We put on several teaching seminars every day.  Taught the Salmon Curing Smoking Process from beginning to final plating last year, along with smoking cheese, Jerry showed us Dutch Oven stuff Cabbage, another did an excellent demo on pulled pork shoulder.

click the pic.. to the website, tickets and reservations will go live shortly.

GREAT looking bunch of food! You must be a very busy chef, putting out food that good!!  Is the cocktail sauce made with smoked ingredients, or did you smoke the sauce itself?   I love using martini glasses for serving - it alway makes people smile.  That all looks delicious, but I think I'd use a slightly different recipe for those "Smoked Crap Cake sliders"? 


You can bet I'd have been the last person to leave that party! Cheers!

Great looking table and nice assortment of foods. Having done a few catering gigs myself I know how much work that represents even in a commercial kitchen

Nice job
